Hook up a different monitor, go into NV control panel and under "screen res and refresh rate" uncheck the box that says "hide modes that this monitor can not support" set the res to either 1280x720 (I believe this is 720p) or 1920x1080 (1080i I believe). Hook up the TV and see if that works.

hi that box was unchecked i came across a box in nv control panel that says force detection of television wondered whether this may help

It won't hurt to try. Give it a shot and post back if it works or not.

720p/1080i has native resolution of either 1280x720 or 1366x768 depending on the panel if it's widescreen. It's probably 1024x178 if it's fullscreen. Some widescreen plasmas are also 1024x768.

Have you tried DVI to DVI? If you're not passing sound through HDMI, there's no compelling use for it.

or DVI to VGA, DVI to Composite works with less limitations.

dont think i can do dvi to dvi as i see no port for it on the back i did however call the helpline and they said i can only use vga to hdmi does anyone know if this may be true as he did not really convince me that he knew what he was talking about
thanks
